As we begin to get out and about more, weekend getaways are popping onto our calendars, as well as our clients'. Whether it's college visits, traveling to see relatives, a girls' trip, or a quick road trip, we've pulled together some of our favorite pieces that are our go-to recommendations as part of a mix-and-match travel capsule.
Our clients (on multiple occasions) have told us that sometimes they fret about travel because they're concerned about what they're going to wear or if they will pack the right items. Can you relate to this? If so, you're not alone! We have heard this for years!!
Even if you don't relate to this 100%, there's a chance that at one time or another, you've felt at a loss for what to put in your suitcase that would meet all your needs and still have you feeling stylish.
Our 3-day travel capsule will have you ready to go with plenty of mix-and-match options. The items we're including are pieces we own or our clients own, so you can be confident knowing they're tried and true.
When you’re packing your suitcase, don’t forget to use our favorite packing cubes! We have used these cubes for long trips, as well as weekend getaways. We’ve packed them where we’ve done one outfit per cube and we’ve also used them where we’ve packed like items together. That’s the beauty of packing cubes, you can use them to fit your needs.
Let’s break down our travel capsule so you can see the method to our madness - or in other words, why we’ve included these pieces.
One of our favorite things to do when in an airport is to scope our travel outfits, how about you? Who doesn't want to look stylish and chic, and of course be comfy, when traveling?! We're always looking for new ideas and inspiration, but quite honestly, we've really honed in a look we absolutely love AND the best part is that it definitely checks all our boxes for on-trend, cozy, and chic!
When traveling, there's no question that we want layers - and options for layers! It's common to span a range of temperatures when traveling (and in most cases, it's out of your control), so we're all about being prepared! This is why we have a tee and a lightweight jacket, as well as a scarf/wrap so we're ready for a variety of temperatures throughout the travel day.
Also, one of our tips for our clients is to wear your Day One outfit for travel home as well (don't forget to pack the undergarments you'll need!). Doing so saves room in your suitcase and keeps your packing super simple.
Day Two of our Travel Capsule, we're providing a versatile ensemble that would be suitable for a day of shopping, site-seeing, sports sidelines or strolling through a cute new little town.
Our advice is to layer up with a jacket and scarf if needed. You can also make this look slightly more dressy by adding sandals rather than sneakers. We've included one of our favorite link necklaces, but feel free to layer a few other delicate necklaces with this piece for an on-trend look.
On this Style Board, you'll also find a cross-body bag that adds just the right pop of color and interest (notice the super cute strap) to elevate the entire look of this outfit. One more tip, we like to wear this tank top with a little side knot at the bottom hem, to add an on-trend detail to the look.
We love to have a dress along when traveling and this dress is a workhorse at a very reasonable price. Mary and Jill both own this dress in multiple colors and it was on heavy rotation last summer for us. We were a little hesitant to post about it again, but quite honestly, for the quality and price, we know we have a winner and we're excited to share it with you again.
This dress can easily be worn dressed up or down and looks as cute with sneakers as it does with sandals. We've paired it with the tote on this Style Board, but the cross-body purse would be equally darling! The majority of our clients have told us how much they love wearing dresses because of the "one and done" factor. We agree! Pop on a cute little dress and you are good to go for the day. What more can you ask for when you're traveling?
We're including a Style Board of some of our very favorite workout items as a bonus for you! Many times when packing for ourselves and our clients there is an element of activity planned, whether a hotel workout, a hike, or something in between - and "regular clothes" just won't fit the bill. This calls for pieces that will be suitable for a workout, whether it be high or low intensity.
We've shared before that we're pretty picky when it comes to what we recommend and all of the pieces on this Style Board meet our standards and the leggings, in particular, are in both of our wardrobes in multiple colors. There are various lengths available if you prefer a cropped length. (For reference, Mary (at 5'3) purchases the 25-inch inseam for her full-length legging and Jill (5'5) purchases 28-inch for full-length. Did we mention they're buttery soft?!
